Q: Imagine that a line on a Cartesian graph is approximately the distance y in feet a person walks in x hours. What does the slope of this line represent? How is this graph useful? Provide another

example for your colleagues to explain.

A: The slope of the line represents the speed of the person in feet per hour. [ This graph is useful because it provides a visual representation of the continuous motion of the person walking, something that could not provided by something like a bar graph. In a bar graph, the sheer number of columns and their shape makes representation of a temporal action cumbersome, whereas in a line graph, the

information is represented fluidly, as it is reality.
